"Our band could be your life." -The Minutemen
Thank you for the good work.
I'd lay my life down for these fuckers. Already have a couple times for a couple of them, too. "DDC Friendship Fees" are long overdue, you roughnecks. Pay up.
How we start our day. Usually, we'll do some random prowling and then realize the day has been "shot to shit" and all calls, emails and project progress has been grossly neglected. Thanks.
The Draplin Design Co. family of brands. We appreciate yer continued support.
The guys who simultaneuously inspire us to "keep going" and, blow our minds enough to make us "want to hang it all up and crawl into the wilderness to die." Tug-o-war action.
Mom got me going with stick figures, and to this day, no margins or backs of envelopes are safe. Dig these guys.
Find out about a new band. Give them a listen. Download some live tracks. Chart a band's tour progress. Forget to press "play" on the iTunes and then question why you give a fuck in the first place.
The dry goods we stand behind. The official "DDC Seal of Approval" is bestowed on a handful of quality products. We use this stuff, and, it's treated us well over the years. That should matter.
Buy some fonts, man.
Dot those i's and cross those t's, then, make sure yer rags look good and then, make sure the k's and o's are kerned properly and make sure there aren't any widows, ever, and, check those smart quotes and...
